Penis to vagina grinding

Aug 13, 2001

Ryan, I recently went on a blind date w/ an older woman. We didn't have sex, but we came very close. She was on top of me grinding her vagina against the head of my penis. I have read hundreds of your responses, none of which seem to give me a direct answer to this type of encounter. Can I get Aids from her grinding her wet vagina against my penis? Hope to get a response. Thanks FI

Response from Mr. Kull

There have been questions similar to yours answered in this forum. The basic answer is twofold. First, HIV is primarily spread through insertive/receptive vaginal or anal intercourse. Second, there is no evidence that anyone has been infected through grinding alone. This speaks to the low-risk nature of this type of activity.

It is possible to get HIV infected through grinding if infected vaginal fluids or blood come into contact with the urethra of your penis. But infection through this route is so unlikely.


does size matter
